Down the Drain

What the Water Gave Me, 1938 by Frida Kahlo, Private Collection.

Kahlo's work is always very personal. This one exposes the thoughts and dreams of the artist whose feet stick out of the water at the end of the tub. She was married to Diego Rivera whose career eclipsed her own, however there has been a revival of her work in the last 15 years which has made her very popular.

Frida Kahlo is great! And did you see the Movie On her? I own it. I think it is great the way they animated some of her works so you could almost see the thought process as it was painted.
